Hells yes, it's about time the government comes up with a plan for a zombie outbreak. I mean sheesh, what took them so long? :/

They could've saved time by just copy/pasting from the Zombie Survival Guide.

In recent years, "zombie apocalypse" has been used a couple times as a hypothetical scenario in first responders' and disaster preparedness meetings because it encourages brainstorming and thinking outside the box.

While researching for World War Z, Max Brooks interviewed representatives from various police departments, emergency responders, and Homeland Security regarding the best way to defend against a zombie attack. According to Brooks, almost all the people he talked to had put at least some amount of thought into the subject.

I think it's good to know that the CDC has some sense of humor.  It makes me think they'd appreciate things like this:

I heard it was Bush who promoted this when he was in office.

I personally have my own zombie hunting permit. Naturally it comes with an infinite kill limit.

Well you do the same sort of things for their other epidemics.  Stock up. Avoid others, ect.

I disagree with avoid others unless you have walls surrounding your home that are impossible to climb. Otherwise, who'll protect you while you sleep?

Sleeping in shifts always works in DnD from zombies.

So comforting to know I'm not the only person who does this.

I think this was a brilliant move on the CDC's part for encouraging a traditionally apathetic segment of the population. Now even the guy glued to his XBox is going to pack some provisions for the naturally disasters.
